New Thermocouple Data Logger.
Pico Technology introduces the USB version of its TC-08
eight-channel thermocouple data logger.
Accurate thermocouple data logger
-270 to 1820 degrees C
Improved accuracy and resolution
Multiple units can be run on a single PC
10 readings per second
Free software: PicoLog Recorder and PicoLog Player
Pico Technology, the PC-based test and measurement company,
has introduced a USB (v1.1) version of its popular TC-08
eight-channel thermocouple data logger. The new unit samples
at up to 10 readings per second (more than twice the speed of
the serial port version), features built-in cold junction compensation
(CJC) and covers the temperature range -270 to 1820 degrees C.
The TC-08 can be used with thermocouple types B, E, J, K, N, R, S
and T and outputs can be viewed in degrees C or mV. The unit is
accurate to 0.2 per cent +/- 0.5 degrees C and has a resolution
of better than 0.1 degrees C for most thermocouple types.
The TC-08's USB connectivity allows multiple units to be run on
a single PC - making it easy to create systems with up to 80
thermocouples. The TC-08 is supplied with PicoLog software
free of charge - full and demo versions of which can be downloaded
Alan Tong, Pico Technology's Technical Director, comments:
"The serial version of the TC-08 was launched in 1995 and, with
temperature being the most common parameter users wish to
measure, fast became one our most popular data logging products.
However, with serial ports no longer provided on modern PCs,
customers had to buy serial-to-USB adapters - but no more: the
new TC-08 connects to a PC via USB, dispensing with the need
for an adapter and delivering enhanced performance."
With the free PicoLog Recorder software, the user can configure
multiple (USB) TC-08s, set the sampling interval from 0.1 seconds
to several hours and set the maximum number of readings. The
user can also tell PicoLog Recorder what to do once the
thermocouple readings have been taken - either: Stop; Repeat
Immediately (start again); Scroll (oldest recordings disappear);
or Repeat After Delay (where the delay is set by the user). The
user can also perform mathematical operations on the thermocouple
outputs: for example to output one temperature relative to another.
Using PicoLog Recorder, TC-08 data can be viewed, in a
spreadsheet and/or in a graph, as it is being recorded. TC-08
data, collected from previous recordings, can also be viewed
in PicoLog Player. The TC-08 (USB version) is available
immediately and retails for £249.00 + VAT.
